“My Waste, My Responsibility”
A change in the paradigm of waste management.
As time advances, so does human aspirations and so does the challenges such aspirations pose to save the planet. The recent advancements in human aspirations have been so complicated that this has become the basic reason for all of the problems that our planet faces today. On top of it, how much we are depleting our valuable resources today when compared to a thousand years back and climate change in this minuscule fraction of a second. Point of the matter is, life cannot continue like this. Only “Change” is the solution to protect Earth and Ourselves.
Once the vision is crystal clear and environmental sustainability became the guiding star, there were only few options left. But ultimately all of us became innovations. The 3 R’s Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is something with life through all our initiatives.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!
The problem of Waste Management will light the fact that waste becoming an unmanageable problem is a very recent phenomenon. Word “Disposables” by disposables what is meant here is that the use of one time use and throws products. Disposable water bottles, paper, plastic cups, plastic and plates, food packaging including aluminium and packaging, plastic bags, etc. Therefore, Green protocol is essentially a set of measures which when implemented results in significant reduction of waste with primary focus on prevention of use of disposables and using reusable alternatives like glass/stainless/porcelain cutleries.
As of today Green protocol is the first initiative of the Waste management. To reuse is to use an item again after it has been used. Many items that we might want to discard because we bought something new like clothes, books, children toys, shoes, electronic items like television sets, mixer grinder, etc could still be useful to someone else. Instead of throwing such articles away one could collect them and give away to someone who might still want to use it.
A lifestyle change to save the environment has become a “Moral Imperative”
Waste became a source and cause of violence, and the resultant pollution and health hazards. The main contention behind these protests was the waste generator is primarily responsible for the wastes he generates and therefore ensuring its proper disposal and emphasized that people should manage it themselves.
This change people mindset from “I waste: You pick up” to “I waste: therefore I am responsible”
Waste Management is about simplicity, self-sustainability and everyone becoming a change agent who will bring change in their own environment that will send ripples all around him.
It is about becoming the change we wish to see in the world.
It is this investment that a healthy planet and helped us create some of the innovations.
Many more are being created and many more are being awakened.
